Creative Cake Stand (top photo)
Glass beads from a necklace, rethreaded onto light-gauge wire, dangle like earrings from the scalloped edge of a glass cake stand.
Earring Table-Runner Fringe
Fringe the ends of a table runner with pretty jeweled earrings. Insert the wires of pierced earrings along the edges. Look for a runner that is made of fabric so the earrings can pierce through it easily.
Beautiful Beaded Napkin Rings
Ordinary metal napkin rings morph into gem-encrusted beauties when you thread beads and crystals onto craft wire and wrap it securely around the rings. Thread more beads onto wire to make a coordinating set of wineglass charms.
Posh Party Favors
Sachet bags sewn from linen, filled with lavender or balsam, and secured with vintage brooches make great party favors or hostess gifts. Or make some for yourself using a loved one's jewelry to create a sweet-smelling reminder of that person.
